Buccal Fat Pad Reduction to Slim The Face in Winnipeg, at First Glance

Serving Patients Across Canada for 25+ Years

What is Buccal Fat Pad Reduction?

Throughout our developmental years, the fat deposits in our face that create those perfectly round chubby cheeks gradually diminish into a more defined facial contour. In some cases, these fat deposits do not go away as expected as we age.

The buccal fat pads are responsible for the fullness of the cheeks, and their reduction can result in a slimmer and more contoured appearance. It involves the removal of excess fat from the buccal fat pad, which is located in the lower portion of the cheeks. This procedure is becoming increasingly popular among individuals seeking a more sculpted, contoured face.

In the right patient, buccal fat pad reduction can provide a number of benefits. This procedure can create a slimmer and more contoured facial appearance. It can help address concerns related to chubby cheeks, or a lack of definition in the cheekbones. Other potential benefits of buccal fat pad reduction surgery include improved symmetry of the face, enhanced facial proportions, and increased self-confidence.

If you have full, overly round, chubby or “chipmunk” cheeks, Buccal Fat Pad Reduction may be the perfect procedure for you. This simple procedure can help you achieve a naturally sculpted, slimmer face shape that can dramatically revitalize your appearance.

How Is the Procedure Performed?

This procedure is performed by making a small incision inside the mouth adjacent to the back teeth. Though this incision, the buccal fat pads are assessed and reduced. Several small dissolving stitches are then used to close the incision. The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia with oral sedation, and takes less than an hour to complete.

Who Is A Good Candidate for Buccal Fat Pad Reduction Surgery?

Good candidates for the procedure typically have full, overly round, or chubby cheeks. You should be generally healthy, at a stable weight, and have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure.

Individuals who may not be good candidates for the procedure include those with a history of bleeding disorders, untreated gum disease, or certain medical conditions that may increase the risk of complications.

Frequently Asked Questions

Choosing Your Surgeon

When considering a surgeon, it’s important to research all of your options and choose a Surgical specialist who is Board Certified in both Aesthetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery. While many plastic surgeons perform many different types of surgeries, you should select a surgeon who focuses strictly on a specific procedure and is recognized for excellence in this procedure.

What are the benefits if your surgeon has a reconstructive surgery background? Most of the world’s best aesthetic surgeons began with reconstructive practices. In fact, almost all of the groundbreaking techniques in aesthetic surgery have reconstructive origins.

Reconstructive surgery cases are typically more complex and often require highly specialized surgical techniques. Comfort, confidence, and predictability with advanced reconstructive surgery techniques have become powerful tools often adapted to aesthetic procedures.

All of the Plastic Surgeons at The First Glance are Board Certified Aesthetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgeons. Many of our surgeons are also Double Board Certified.
